Night 1 in Bradenton:
Today we were going to have a pot roast for dinner, but the oven here keeps shutting off. This makes cooking very difficult. By 7:10 the pot roast was still not finished cooking, so we decided to leave it cooking in the oven for tomorrow, and we went out to eat. When we got to the restaurant, the prices were outrageous (at more than 1), and we found out that it is much more expensive to eat at a restaurant on the weekends. It was $10.39 per person (it was a buffet), which meant to feed our children alone would have cost us more than $20.00. We all decided that we would return to our cozy little condo and eat our pot roast. At least we had some good laughs in the van on the way out to eat, exposing everyone's strange little quirks. We are just about ready to chow and it is 8:30pm. What an exciting adventure!! Dinner smells scrumptious!
